Focus on the Sunday Gospel Celebrate the 3rd Sunday in Lent.
Use this unit study to help teach children that Jesus offers everyone who will follow Him eternal life with Him in Heaven. This lesson is based on Christ's meeting of the Samaritan woman at the well in the Gospel of St. John 4:5-42.
This week’s Gospel reminds us of God’s immense love for us as Jesus uses the simple act of being thirsty to offer a Samaritan woman eternal life. Although she initially does not recognize Jesus as the Messiah, He convinces her by His knowledge of her private, less than perfect life. God reminds us that He loves us as He offers eternal life to anyone who will follow Him and accept it.
